We arrived late the night before and thus needed a hearty breakfast after traveling and a nights rest. It was well worth the splurge. Grounds are beautiful Christine our waitress was attentive and full of a wealth of locals knowledge. The muesli cooked with cocoanut milk was great. The fruit was amazing, Pineapple with chili lime sweet and savory. Potato... More

We stayed at the Marriott on whose grounds this restaurant occupies pool-side, and ate there every day for their breakfast buffet, and one evening dropped by for dessert. The breakfast buffet is pricey, $25.99 per person, but the food and service makes it worth it. They have an excellent omelette station and will create whatever omelette you want. They also... More

We were staying at the hotel where Kukui's is and, since it was my boyfriend's birthday, I thought it would be a nice dinner. It happened to be the same night as the "buffet" which they only have on Friday. We saw, later in the week, that this is also the only night that anyone eats here. For good reason.... More

We were so happy we had the breakfast package included in our hotel stay at the Marriott. The buffett was always so delicious. They changed up items so it didn't feel like we had the same food every morning. Kudos to the chefs for all the different variety to meet everyones taste buds & health craze needs. We ordered a...

If we were to return to the Marriott, we would probably take more of our meals at this restaurant. The staff are attentive. The food quality is very good.

The breakfast buffet was wonderful--a delightful Mothers' Day treat! There was a huge variety of food, but it was pricey.

We went to Kukui twice. One for their easter buffet which was average to good. But not worth the price. Second for dinner Very average food and drink. Breads served are good. lentil soup was better than the lemongrass chicken that lacked flavor. Overpriced too. We didn't go back.

We ate here three times, once for dinner and twice for breakfast. The service was extremely slow on all three occassions. It would take a long time to be seated, an even longer time to take our order and then what felt like eternity to get food. One morning it was almost a 45 minute wait to get some oats... More

Ordered Thai pad, they left out the bean curd and peanuts that were said to be included in the dish. Breakfast was great. The breakfast bar was extensive and the egg white frittata was super!
